Jury Duty Scam:
Please be aware of a Jury Duty Scam currently affecting South Carolina residents. There have been recent reports of residents being called by individuals claiming to be court officers or law enforcement officers stating a warrant has been issued for your failure to appear for jury duty. These individuals will attempt to verify your personal information and/or tell you that the warrant can be taken care of by paying a fine with your credit card or by obtaining a pre-paid debt card. The public is urged to report these calls to local law enforcement.
Do not give out any sensitive personal information. Court officials will not ask for money over the phone. All Beaufort County Courts notify residents by mail if they are selected for jury duty, or if they have missed jury duty.
